Rock Wall at the ARC


With more than 50 routes of varying difficulty, the ARC Rock Wall is a modern facility that offers something for everyone. If you're new to climbing, our friendly and helpful staff will help you get started with everything you need to know. If you're looking to push your abilities to the next level, the wall's realistic rock-like texture and features will help you refine your technique indoors. Bring a belay partner or just drop by and meet new friends. Check out the classes and trips on the Outdoor Adventures web page to learn how you can climb outside.

Free Climb Nights

The Rock Wall will be open for Free Climb January 3rd - 7th from 3pm to 9pm. Patrons must reserve a time slot ahead of time. Reservations become available 24 hours before. All Rock Wall patrons will be given a Rock Wall Orientation at the beginning of their session, this should only take 5 minutes. Free Climb Nights are free and do not require a membership. Unfortunately, we will only be offering bouldering at this time. Top Rope climbing will become available again later in the quarter.
